This unique afghan uses a special date to create the plaid design. The afghan can be made as is, or learn how to customize your own date by reading the tutorial article in the instructions. Each number in the date represents a color and the number of rows for each color. A Mesh Base is stitched, then you weave in long strands of yarn through each mesh square. A fun and interesting way of color design.

Commemorate a birthday, anniversary or any special date with the Celebration Plaid Afghan! Crochet expert Rohn Strong takes the guesswork out of creating your customized, one-of-a-kind afghan design! Rohn also explains the process to select yarn to match the date you wish to honor, creates a swatch of the filet crochet mesh base and demonstrates how to weave in the cross-pattern fringe. This video and pattern are rated as confident beginner so it’s really a good one to work up quickly as a thoughtful gift.

I have a student who is blind and she has started crafting two years ago with me. Her favorite has been loopy yarn and latch hook. I am always on the lookout for new and exciting things for her to try and make into gifts for her family. I saw this pattern and the light went off. She could do this. I crocheted the base net using her birthdate as my guide. This was perfect as she is a twin and you use then date twice.. she did all the weaving and made the fringe, everyone was amazed at how beautiful this Afghan was especially her mom who received it as a Christmas gift. Thank you Annie's for yet another great pattern. We also are members of the monthly craft kit and she loves trying new crafts with me each month.

I am very happy with this pattern. The instructions are clear, quick and essy and the calculations are simple to understand and can be adapted to fit any date. I have a request to make one in certain other colors; can't wait to see how it turns out.
